Was nice to have the dam opened up again this week. Hit it this morning for a few hours, lots of small walleye 5"-9" lost one nice one and something else that was big that I didn't get to see. Minnow and split shot was the ticket. Very lite bite, waters freezing up fast though. Hanging it up till spring, gonna start tying some flies and hair jigs for spring. Have safe and fun holidays everyone and be safe on the ice
Jefferson Dam ONLY Rock River, Jefferson County
Went this morning for a bit since it was all open yesterday afternoon when I stopped by, this morning was completely opposite most of the area along the island on both side ls froze over and lots of floating foam stacking up making it hard to fish if it stays cold like this it will be completely locked by mid week

Went Saturday afternoon Hit the Bridge first got nothing then went to the Dam and saw some white bass being caught. Right when the Sun went down the Saugers/Eyes started biting. Ended with 3 Keepers plus another 20-30 short. Most fish were about 12-14 inches. I probably missed about 20 or so seemed like I was getting one every cast. Very light bite all on 3-way with minnow.

Been a bust for me last two mornings at the dam, a few shorts not in the numbers I was getting last week but enough to keep interest lost one about 18" or so he was just holding the bait never hooked. Decided to use my last 20 min up at the park and bam in first three casts got one around 23" but just couldn't keep her she was fatter then sin figured full off eggs so let her go and came home for breakfast. Very very lite bitters most didn't even know they were on right away.
